Which would be very appropriate, in a thread about advice for inexperienced writers. This thread isn’t about that.
More to the point, that’s not how the power dynamic between readers and writers works. Readers never owe a writer anything, except what any two human beings owe to each other, which is to engage civilly and respectfully. 100% of the onus for convincing the reader to read is on the writer (or the publishing house, or agent, or other literary professionals whose job is to promote a book).
The reader doesn’t owe the writer to give them a chance, and that’s as true here on the forums as it is in a bookstore. Writing a summary is akin to writing a query letter or a back cover blurb. Part of the job.
As such, I think a discussion of how novice writers can better engage new readers, probably belongs somewhere else. Actually, creating a thread for writing advice (if there isn’t one already) might not be a bad idea.
